DJ Maphorisa and WizKid

DJ Maphorisa has been winning big of late. We can all agree that he is that celebrated DJ we all love to hate, from selling Kota’s to buying R2 million watches. No doubt he is living that soft life in the wake of his newfound fame.

Dupped as the King of Amapiano, DJ Maphorisa has teased the world with his new project with Nigerian Afro-pop superstar WizKid.

He shared a studio session whilst vibing to their latest project. WizKid was singing along with Phori on the mixer.

The viral leaked video got Mzansi talking. The world at large weighed into comments sections counting down for the release of the much-awaited project.

Before, the two have worked together and are known for dropping more than smash hits. In 2016 they released Soweto Baby, which also featured DJ Buckz. The song has already surpassed the 15 million viewership mark on YouTube.

However, on the other hand, DJ Maphorisa has fast become the most sort after DJ after pioneering the Amapiano genre to the world with Kabza de Small. The two have produced smash hits such as Adiwele, Izolo and Lorch.

The Rise of Maphorisa to fame

He had his shot to fame when he was still part of Uhuru. His flair saw him producing one of Davido’s smash hits, The Sound. In 2013 he hogged the headlines when he featured in Mafikizolo’s 2013 smash hit, Khona. Of interest is the fact that he co-produced the track too.

Uhuru worked with celebrated DJ’s likes Oskido, Professor, and DJ Buckz. In 2016 Maphorisa worked on the smash hit One Dance ft, and Wizkid and Kayla and Maphorisa was the face of the group which was thrust into the international stardom. Since then, he has been winning big.
